What we do
By advancing the documentation, acquisition and display of modern and contemporary Asian art, Tate Research Centre: Asia aims to deepen awareness of Tate’s growing international collection and address the significant challenge that Asian art represents in the UK in terms of access, public understanding and critical interpretation.
The rigorous programme of research managed by Tate Research Centre: Asia has three strands:
- the dissemination of new research through seminars, symposia and publications
- the promotion of scholarly exchange through the Visiting Fellowship programme and other developmental research opportunities
- the development of partnerships with related institutions both in the UK and in Asia.
Tate Research Centre: Asia was established in 2012 following a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
